You know what occurred to me? I forgot to weigh myself yesterday on the first day of my journey. I feel like celebrating until the cows come home! I feel like kissing my dogs. Shoot, I'll even call my husband to my office and give him a kiss. You want to know why? I'll tell you! It's because I must truly not be dieting. I always weigh myself the minute I get out of bed when I start a diet. Then if I pass the bathroom with the scale I weigh myself again...and again...and again.
This morning I woke up and thought about peaches and strawberries. I thought about eating. Frankly, I'm scaring myself. I FORGOT THE SCALES! I did remember you though. You've got to hold up your end of the bargain I told myself. You're pulling other people along for this ride.
Here's the other interesting thing I do before embarking on a diet. I stuff myself. I order a pizza and ask for it to be cut into four pieces because I'll get too
full if I eat six. I think that's pretty funny but the joke's usually on me. Actually, it's always on me.
Right now it's 10:30 something or other at night and I've eaten breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I felt the urge to go downstairs to the kitchen to get something else but you know what? I'm really not hungry. I've entered all my food on fitday.com and I've had a very balanced day.
Let's make a toast. Here's to a day of kind mindful eating and here's to you too! Thanks for traveling the celeryandcarrots path with me.
